Peralta's HR helps Arizona beat Detroit 7-6
(DETROIT) – David Peralta led off the top of the ninth inning, swinging at the first pitch Detroit closer Justin Wilson offered, and hit a solo homer to left center, giving the Arizona Diamondbacks a 7-6 win over the host Tigers. The Diamondbacks, who improved to 8-1 in interleague games, gave starter Zack Greinke a 6-0 lead in the third inning before the Tigers rallied for six runs in the sixth to tie it. Arizona reliever Archie Bradley (2-1) pitched a scoreless eighth to pick up the win and former Tiger Fernando Rodney had a perfect ninth for his 17th save. Greinke went 5 2/3 innings and allowed five runs, all unearned, and five hits. Wilson (2-2) took the loss after allowing the homer to Peralta. Starter Buck Farmer went 2 1/3 innings and allowed six runs on nine hits. He was 2-0 and had gone 13 straight scoreless innings before Tuesday. The Tigers fought back in the sixth, with help from a throwing error on shortstop Owings, who tried to turn a double play on Alex Avila's ground ball but threw the ball into left field. Ian Kinsler scored on the error and Avila went to second. Miguel Cabrera followed with an RBI double, then J.D. Martinez hit a two-run homer to make it 6-4. Alex Presley and Jose Iglesias added RBI singles to tie the score.
